New Jonny Clousson EP Available for Streaming & Download

Jonny Clousson, of North Carolina’s Almost People, recently shared a pair of tracks. The Two Cents EP gradually builds melodically in an uphill climb. A conversational, stream-of-consciousness lyricism opens an avenue into the emotive, internal monologue. Casual, contagious energy and sing-along-inspiring hooks make you want to stay there. Instead of getting caught up in the past or the future, slow it down, listen, and enjoy the moment.

Chicago Funk Mafia

Chicago Funk Mafia released their latest album, Boötis, last week. This is the five piece funk project consisting of Mike Mongoven (Guitar), Max Mauer (Piano/Vocals), Dustin Borlack (Drums), James Wenzel (Bass), and Myrrick Liontonia (Vocals).

The album title and cover are a play on the constellation Boötes and you can tell that it also inspired some intergalactic funk on this project. My favorite track is the laidback, poolside ready, tune “Summer Song” below.

You can catch Chicago Funk Mafia at the Merchant Street Music Festival in Kankakee on July 27th.


Champagne Superchillin' release stylish new video, perform at Alphaville on 06.23

Opening with strings that instantly hook listeners is a bold move for a band’s lead single. But everything about Champagne Superchillin’ screams boldness, from the sensual and soothing vocals sung entirely in French to the title of their newest single which translates into “love of fate”. “Amor Fati” is a cool, cinematic song and the first single of the band’s upcoming album Beach Deep. It utilizes the sum of the band’s parts to create something that is effortless in its charisma; the bass line instantly finds a swaying groove as a psychedelic mist coats the guitars. The single is evocative and instills old-school pop styles without relying on nostalgia to create a brilliant introduction to the band. However, the track also blends darker tones to create something that is simultaneously mesmeric and uneasy. The strings cut back in twice, transforming the song into a bewitching soundtrack for nocturnal creatures. You can watch the music video for “Amor Fati” below and catch Champagne Superchillin’ performing at Alphaville on June 23. -Tucker Pennington


New Track: "this.is.water." - Nuna & the Wayward Spirit

Nuna & the Wayward Spirit are releasing a new single on the first of every month, accumulating to the RISE.LIKE.RAIN EP. “this.is.water.” serves as the first installment. Keys create an awaking atmosphere before the burst of instrumentation breaks through. Steadily matriculating in controlled steps, the track searches for solutions amid the balancing act of life. Remaining calm in the face of change, there’s a controlled, contemplative essence, as the internal evolution threatens to tear you apart. (Photo by Frank Lettieri Jr.)
